Summer Camps Recap
Minecraft U at Hockaday happily had our busiest summer ever. Every day, we had over forty students absorbed for hours in the wonder of Minecraft. Whether building farms and houses, piecing together virtual locking doors and flying machines, or modding new contraptions, every child spent the day challenged and excited by the never-ending novelty of Minecraft.
Our curriculum, now in its fifth year of development and expansion, rewards children for learning more and solving challenging tasks. Walk into the Minecraft U computer lab and you’ll find a joyful mix of children intently focused on building something new and then some excited chatter, as they share their accomplishments with their classmates and instructors. At the end of each week, our students receive a certificate of progress, showing how much of the curriculum they’ve mastered. After camp is over, they are still allowed to play on the official Minecraft U whitelisted server and continue using their skills to create new projects.
